Raimon Panikkar Summary

Raimon Panikkar: A Companion to his Life and Thought by Peter C. Phan

Raimon Panikkar: A Companion to his Life and Thought is a guide to the life, work and thought of Raimon Panikkar, a self-professed Buddhist-Christian-Hindu philosopher and theologian. A man of deep and wide learning and an extremely prolific author, Panikkar is equally at home in various religious and cultural traditions and embodies in himself the ideals of intercultural, intrareligious, and interreligious dialogues. This book explicates Panikkar's basic vision of life as the harmonious rhythm of divinity, humanity, and the cosmos, which he terms cosmotheandrism, and shows how it permeates and illumines his articulations of the central Christian doctrines. Given the complexity and difficulty of Panikkar's thought this book is a welcome companion for a course on Panikkar and for a general reader who wishes to understand one of the most profound and orginal thinkers of our time.

Raimon Panikkar Reviews

I would readily recommen this volume to anyone interested in acquainting themselves with Panikkar's work, or for those who wish to deepen their understanding of his 'mutationism' and mysticism John Alllison, Reading Religion, 2020 This is a really important study Robin Gill, Editor, Theology 122(5) The greatest merit of th indispensable 'companion', is perhaps that it inspires its reader to embark, beyong (but not without) their own religious tradition on a journey towards the mystery of being itself. As much as Panikkar himself, this captivating colume does not leave its readers untouched. Johan Verstraeten, Loyvain Studies (2020) N.2 p.186-87
